Fantasy Sonisphere 2012-13

Postby PurpleDemon » Sun May 13, 2012 11:17 pm

Right. I'm starting this now for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I'm bored. Secondly, you'll be able to tweak and edit all the way up to the first announcement for 2013 (whenever that may be), but all predictions done before 8th of July this year (the date Soni would have finished this year) will be recorded as well and the person who ends up having the highest score from the bands they had predicted up to that point will get a Soni t-shirt at the festival next year (provided it happens, and both me and the highest scorer attend). Booze and flumps will also be possible prizes.

Here's how to play:

Choose...
3 bands you think will headline the main stage.
12 other bands you think will appear elsewhere on the bill.

Rules:
1. You can select any act (even Bryan Ferry), so long as they haven't already been announced.
2. Up until the first announcement, you can make changes to the bands you've chosen.

Scoring:
(simple version)
* Bands are worth more points if less people predict them.
* Headliners are worth more points if predicted correctly.
* A cancelled band is worth less points.
* A band playing more than one set is worth an extra 500 points for each additional set.


(less simple version)
Each band is worth 1000 points, divided between everyone who predicted them. So if 5 people predict Motley Crue play, and 2 people predict that Rival Sons play, then Crue would be worth 200 points for each player, and Rival Sons would be worth 500 points.

If one of the bands you've predicted as a headliner end up headlining on the mainstage, then the point value is tripled (total point value of 3000 points). So if you predicted KISS, 3 other people predict them, and they end up headlining, they'd be worth 750 points. Note this is a mainstage headliner; Saturn and Bohemia headliners don't count.

If one of the bands you've predicted cancels, then they are only worth half points (total point value of 500). So for example, if you had Anthrax and were one of two people who did, and they mysteriously disappear off the bill, then you both get 250 points each. Cancelled headliners do not get triple points.

Only bands that appear on the poster count as scoring bands.

If a band appears on the poster, and I see it, then they get taken off and we never hear about them again, I'll consider it a cancelled band.

If you pick, say, Enter Shikari, and they get booked to play Saturn AND a DJ set in Bohemia, and three others pick them, you get 750 points (250 + 500 point bonus)


Winning:
The winner is the person with the most points on the Monday before Sonisphere 2013, should it take place. The prizes, as mentioned, will be some overpriced alcohol and other stuff, with a t-shirt for the winner from predictions on July 8th.

If it carries on like this, Iron Maiden will be worth about 4 points...!

Most likely. The lowest a band got to for this year was 50 points, I think. It doesn't help that EVERYONE knows Maiden will play.

The awkward moment when Lee doesn't realise that there are only a finite amount of bands in the world.

Also the awkward moment when he has to google 'finite'.

Predictions =/= wishlists.

Anyway...

Fear: 11 repeats.
mt: 7, 9 if you include Frank Turner and OMS.
liam: 9
Me: 5
Billy: 7 (8 if you include Black Stone Cherry)

Billy's actually the second best for picking original acts :P

okies...

headliners
friday = alice cooper. (if they don't cut it down to a two day fest).
metallica (edit 28/9).
foo fighters.

other bands
stone sour. (have a new album out in october i think so could be touring fests in 2013... but also cause i like them).
the offspring. (more because i want them. but i imagine they would be a popular choice).
sick of it all. (again more cause i want them. keep them in the tent though, much better place for them).
staind. (due to play in 2012 and would be interesting to see how he does in a festival environment).
skindred. (well, it's sort of a tradition).
koRn. (were excellent at dl 2011).
black stone cherry. (were excellent at dl 2011).
airbourne. (did a brilliant set at 2009, so i have been told).
madness. (well... i have been trying to get them for 3 years now).
nightwish. (cause you need a girl-fronted band somewhere).
soil. (again brilliant in 2009).
anthrax. (the real reason soni failed this year). :P

for the record this is both my predictions and also my wishlist. (with the exception of anthrax unless john bush rejoins).
also... i think that soni will go back to a two day festival in 2013 but cause i don't want to lose points, i have named three headliners. probably going to get an argument back but it's just my opinion

:)

are you including thin lizzy in that cos they were meant to play in 2009???? .............. i dont think drop outs and bands from this year should count as we they havent actually played so therefore couldnt be a repeat if you get my meaning :?

everyone who guesses should have at least 1 repeat (iron maiden) :D

i am just hoping we have a festival to attend next year :pray:
